Indiana Mad-ManThe East Face  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2006

Indiana Mad-Man

Probably one of the most memorable climbs in my short repetoir. Even though the east face is the easiest route up it makes climbs like middle and south seem like walk-ups. An amazing summit though and some fanstastic views.

With my friend Karl Lainhart. There wasn't much snow and we avoided it all. Loved the airy, exposed summit. Next time, I'll brave standing up on it for the summit photo!

I was in way over my head on this one. Luckily, a guy descending from the summit suggested that maybe I should turn around and I obeyed. Incredible climb if you know what you are doing. My issues were lack of route finding ability, poorly fitting shoes, and lack of real steep snow slope experience. I will try again with someone who knows what they are doing.

Pretty chill 5.6 route. Great view of the Grand and Owen. Good solo route. Only one or two pitches that would be worth roping up for. Can do it pretty quick from the car.

One of my favorite climbs in the Tetons and certainly one of the best summits around....

Climbed with Andy and ATTM. Some of the best rock and some of the worst rock around. Fun climb.

My group (two guys and I) set out early in the morning on an attempt of the East Face but accidentally ended up climbing the Northeast Chimney (one of the best mistakes I have ever made). It's more challenging than the East Face and requires more rock climbing skill than the Owen Spalding route up the Grand Teton which I did a few days before Teewinot. We did eventually come to a point where we couldn't downclimb what we had just come up, so the only way to get down was to summit first and try to figure it out from there. Other groups were surprised when they summited and found two guys and a girl all talking on cell phones trying to figure out how to get down! Luckily we were able to figure it out. Take a look at my trip report!

My husband and climbing partner, bthere, claims we climbed this on our 1 year anniversary. Not true, we climbed it days prior to our wedding. This I know because I was certain my family would end up at my funeral instead. The north face was adventurous, but REALLY lose rock and poor pro. One of my anchors consisted of a cordellete slung around a small, loose boulder that I sat on top of in an effort to make a stronger anchor. Due to the loose rock all I could think during the entire climb was "please let there be no people underneath this climb".

Great climb, tougher on the legs and knees than anything else, one mistake on the climb though was to not bring an ice ax, the snow patches about 3/4 of the way up are made much easier and quicker when an ice ax is available. Also be sure to bring lots of water as there are precious few run-off springs on the route in which to fill up. Great, fun climb perfect for begginers or people looking for a fun and challenging day!

This is a great mountain to climb. The route basically goes straight up the mountain. There is some fun 4th class scrambling. The view of the Grand and Mount Owen is very beautiful but the descent is a little hard on your legs.

Summitted, but early altitude sickness ended what is probably one of the more pathetic attempts at the Grand Traverse in recorded history.

Solo ascent, like most of my ventures. Climbed base to summit in just over 4hrs...would've been less, but I spent an hour futzing around looking for the route. Only one pitch with any real exposure, but it was enough to make things interesting...oh yes. And downclimbing it was even more exciting. At least the rock was firm. Magnificent, unique view from the summit. LOOONG way down, hard on the knees. Met three parties on the descent, all real friendly folks. My car was an oven when I got back.

This is a LONG day climb with a lot of elevation gain, but very fun. Great views of the range from up close. As stated in the overview page, the climb/descent is definately at the hard end of Class 4 (at least for me).

My wife and I spent our first anniversary on Teewinot. The route is not recommended for pure climbing, but the adventurous nature is hard to match. The entire bit across the North Face is loose and scary, with marginal protection in the shattered rock. We spent so much time on the summit collecting ourselves that we descended the East Face in the dark.

The East Ridge route is a very nice rock climb (5.4) with the same easy approach as the East Face. The difficulty can be varied according to how closely one follows the ridge crest.

Climbed to the summit as a simul-solo with David Kozak in 10 hrs car-to-car. Route finding was a bit tricky and we ended up slightly off route on some terrain which was probably 5th class. There were two short sections of very compact snow which were quite tedious but tolerable in approach shoes. The descent was the hardest part since there were sustained sections of exposed class 4 climbing which required careful attention. Very nice summit with great views and a nice photo opportunity on the very sharp summit pinnacle.
